We were joined this morning in conversation by Dr Michael McKillop whose achievements in Paralympic Sport have thrilled the island of Ireland, and whose defeat in Tokyo was heartbreaking.
In an emotional chat, we covered:
* His acceptance of what had happened and what he felt about it
* His decision announced today to hopefully carry on to the next World Championships at least
* How he is sitting down with the ‘stakeholders’ in Team McKillop to determine how he can do that with their continued support.
* What it was like in the moment on the track in Tokyo.
Allianz Ireland has been a proud partner of Paralympics Ireland since 2010 and has partnered with Michael for five years. Today, Allianz has welcomed back Michael after his courageous performance over the weekend.
